Tom Brady Looks To Slay The Giants Tonight In Tampa

The Giants are set to visit the Bucs tonight in what should be a good test of Tampa’s home field advantage. The Bucs are 4-0 at home this year, but Florida is a state that’s pretty well populated with transplants from the northeast either permanently or seasonally. The seasonal bunch are referred to as “snowbirds”, so I’m curious to see what percent of the crowd will be pulling for Big Blue. I attended a Giants at Buccaneers game two years ago and I can tell you the crowd was at least 50% Giants fans. Will the Bucs winning ways have turned the tide?

Right now the Bucs are 11 point favorites and the line feels a bit high to me. Yes, the Buccaneers are a much better team at home, but the series between the Giants and Bucs has been remarkably close the last four years.

The Bucs are getting a much needed boost in their secondary with return of Sean Murphy-Bunting who had three interceptions in the post-season last year. With Carlton Davis still out, he’ll be our best Corner.

Gronk will also be back for for the offense which has missed him greatly, especially his blocking since his injury two months back and re-injury of his back a few weeks ago in New Orleans.

I won't bet for any player or team to have success against the Bucs, but I do think the line is pretty high. The other plays I like tonight from a Giants perspective are:

Daniel Jones OVER 242.5 passing yards

Kenny Golladay OVER 49.5 receiving yards

Kadarius Toney OVER 42.5 receiving yards

I don’t love a ton of props on the Bucs side outside of Buccaneers ML, but today is my guy Giovani Bernard’s birthday. 

If you parlay that with Bucs ML it pays out +440.

It should be a fun one, hopefully with a different result than the last time the G-Men were in town. As always good luck to all the bettors and Go Bucs!
